Lovely little gardens behind a gated wall. Located beside the cathedral. A small walkway under wisteria. Scattered flowers and plants. Benches are dotted about the gardens for resting. Quiet and calm.

This is a lovely garden and great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. A very well managed and interesting garden in which to explore or to think. One of the magic places that make Haddington so special.
